This is what was taken with my mobile. I don't have a photo from the camera handy, but it was not pretty. Too much noise as I upped ISO while trying to capture a child standing still at 1/200 etc

The phone probably applies a lot of noise reduction; the fact that it does that quietly in the background is one of the many reasons why you can't translate the settings from your phone to the camera.

1/50s will freeze motion of someone standing still, so you starved your sensor of 3/4 of the light it could have received. That translates into doubling the noise.

I was hoping to take a better photo on my M100 than that of a mobile phone, but I did not succeed on this occasion

As you were there and there were few clouds around to obscure the moon in the next few minutes the obvious thing was to experiment with different settings on the camera while you had the subject available.
